I’m delighted today to be on the blog blitz for The Wrong Envelope by Liz Treacher – an lovely little romantic comedy that had me gripped from beginning to end!
Two worlds are about to collide.Evie Brunton loves her job. Twice a day, she spins along the narrow lanes of Devon on her bicycle, delivering letters from a heavy post bag. When the flamboyant London artist, Bernard Cavalier, drops like a meteor into her sleepy village, everything changes. Bernard is supposed to be painting for an important exhibition, but the countryside has its own charms, in particular his young post lady…
Light and witty, and full of twists and turns, The Wrong Envelope is a charming romantic comedy. It captures the spirit of another age – when letters could change lives.

What an absolutely charming book! This is a brilliant debut from Liz!
Set in 1920, we meet Evie who is content in her life in her village in Devon delivering post to her customers. She has a rather strange experience with a ‘weird’ guy on the train…..who then ends up staying in her village, and being one of her customers! Bernard and Evie’s lives collide in some amusing ways….but what will happen? How will it all turn out?
As I mentioned, charming is the most perfect word to describe this beautiful story. I fell in absolute love with the characters, and was so sucked in to the story….truly going on the journey with them. I was dismayed, shocked, entertained and amused by Bernard’s antics and loved the fact that Evie is a strong independent woman, who really comes out of herself.
The fact that it was set in the 1920’s gives it a real sense of uniqueness with a wonderful storyline. And I loved that it revolves around good old fashioned letters!
The way Liz has told the story and described the scenery really brings Devon to life. It feels like you’re there with Bernard, visiting Devon for the first time and experiencing the beautiful little country village and surroundings. Her writing style is brilliant, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable.
I was routing for the characters all the way through; with so many twists and turns you genuinely have no idea of the ending! I have book number 2, The Wrong Direction, sitting on my shelf, ready for a review on 31st May and I can’t wait to read it!! The Wrong Envelope is most definitely highly recommended by me!
